One pot meal – Italian Wonderpot

Another winner found on pinterest.

Yummy, Easy, Cheap, Healthy, Fast.

I have made other meals from Budget Bytes before and always come out great.

Who doesn’t love to cook something that involves some simple cutting and one pot? I definitely do.

I didn’t have red pepper flakes on hand so didn’t add them & also want to add mushrooms.

My friend added some canned chicken to his because he has to have meat. So feel free to add your favorite meat ; you favorite sausage, ground beef, ground turkey, shredded chicken, ect.

Let me know how you like it and what your additions were.

Italian Wonderpot

What you need:

  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz. fettuccine
  • 8 oz. frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ Tbsp dried basil
  • ½ Tbsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 oz. feta cheese
Instructions
  1. Add four cups of vegetable broth to a large pot. Break the fettuccine in half to make stirring easier later, and then add it to the pot. Also add the canned tomatoes (undrained), olive oil, frozen spinach, onion (thinly sliced), garlic (thinly sliced), basil, oregano, red pepper, and some freshly cracked black pepper.
  2. Make sure the ingredients are submerged under the liquid, place a lid on top of the pot, and then turn the heat on to high. Allow the pot to come up to a full, rolling boil over high heat then remove the lid and turn the heat down to medium.
  3. Allow the pot to continue to boil over medium heat, without a lid, for 10-15 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Stir the pot every few minutes as it cooks to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom, but avoid over stirring which can cause the pasta to become sticky and mushy. The pot must be boiling the entire time.
  4. After the pasta is cooked, crumble the feta cheese over top and serve.
